    Why didn't I see the posts before wookie's?

    I don't really mind mixmatching as long as they're the same speed.

    You can take me off the list. I was with my uncle today and he had a spare 2x256 set he didn't mind giving me.

    I need 2x256mb 144pin sodimm (laptop memory).... not necessarily for a crunching rig.... but it is for my firewall which allows me to upload my work and download more work, so I guess in the end it is part of the circle of life.

    thanks :toast: do you think the ~500ppd the P4 puts out is worth setting it up again? I only need 2 things (ram+HDD) to get it running again... Also it looks like the live CD can be ran on a flash drive. I am going to mess around with that maybe i won't even need a HDD :rockout:

    I have played around with linux a few times myself but still not familiar with it all that much. if i can get it to work on a flash drive that would be great they are alot cheaper then HDD. You can pickup a 4gb flash drive for $7 most of the times if your lucky.also they don't make any noise and take less power. The only disadvantage is they don't last as long as a hdd and alittle slower(doesn't matter when your running a dedicated cruncher)

    one thing i forgot they don't take up any extra space like HDDs do.
    I started thinking laptop drives would also be great for crunchers because they are small,cool,low power draw, and don't make much noise. they are bigger and last longer then flash drives but also cost alot more everything has its trade-offs :ohwell:

    pendrives are already realtively cheap,and not too slow, regarding old hdd´ss, that should be fine;)
